It’s no secret that Google’s Nest home security is one of the best DIY home security options out right now. You can buy a kit that includes a Nest Camera and a Nest Sensor for much cheaper than some of their competitors’ counterparts.
While the Nest Security system is one of the most comprehensive DIY options on the market, you may not understand all that it can really do. In this blog post, we will talk in-depth about the different functionalities of the Nest suite.
1. Nest Cam Indoor
The Nest Cam Indoor is one of the most popular products that Nest has released. Its sleek look makes it easy to blend into any room in your home. Not only does the Nest Cam Indoor have a way of being aesthetic, but it also works well. The Nest Cam Indoor comes with a two-way voice, night vision, and instant alerts when there is activity in the house.
2. Nest Cam Outdoor
The Nest Cam Outdoor is a great way to keep an eye on the outdoors of your home. It comes with live streaming, wind and noise cancellation, intelligent alerts, and night vision.
3. Nest Temperature Sensor
If you have a Nest Thermostat, you can also have a Nest Temperature Sensor in your home. The Nest Temperature Sensor will constantly monitor the temperature of your home so that you always know if it needs to be adjusted. If there are any major fluctuations in temperature or humidity then you will get instant notifications sent directly to your phone from the sensor itself.
4. Nest Protect [Smoke + CO Alarm]
One thing that sets this device apart from others on the market is its ability to detect both smoke and carbon monoxide. With its built-in sensors, the Nest Protect is able to measure the smoke and CO levels in your home so that you always know if there is a problem. It also sends an instant alert directly to your phone when it senses a problem.
5. Nest Detect
Nest Detect is a device that works with the Nest Secure system. It is a sensor for doors and windows. If there is ever any opened door or window in your home then the Nest Detect will sense that and send an alert directly to you.
6. Nest Protect [Secondary]
The secondary Nest Protect sensor works just like any other motion-activated device would work. The only difference is that this one comes with a floodlight that will turn on whenever motion is sensed. This way, the person who has set off the alarm knows that there was a motion detected and can deal with what caused it before entering through the door again.
7. Nest Tag
The Nest Tag stickers allow you to add a touch of personalization to your home. They are easy to apply and remove from almost any surface. The great thing about these tags is that they will not set off the alarm if they come into contact with a sensor during a false alarm, which makes them ideal for pets. You can also use these tags for all kinds of other functions around the house, such as helping your kids find their way back home by giving them one of the tags to take with them wherever they go.
The Nest Guard is the key part of your security system. It is a small, tabletop device that consists of a touch screen and two buttons. A simple swipe on the screen will disable or enable the alarm in your home. A double-tap on one of the buttons will activate it, while a long press on one of the buttons will allow you to easily silence an alarm if it goes off by accident at night when everyone is trying to sleep.
As you can see, the Nest security system is quite comprehensive. It offers everything that you need to make sure you are always safe in your own home. The great thing about it is that all of this comes in a sleek package, so it can blend right into your home without being too obvious or bulky. Not only does the system work well, but it looks great while doing it!
